The United States Federal Government is seeking out researchers to investigate how marijuana’s cannabinoids and terpenes work and whether they can treat pain.

There are over 110 known cannabinoids and 120 terpenes, and according to the funding notices published by the the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, the government is defining “minor cannabinoids” as all those other than THC and CBD, making this a massive undertaking.

“The mechanisms and processes underlying potential contribution of minor cannabinoids and terpenes to pain relief and functional restoration in patients with different pain conditions may be very broad,” the notices state. “This initiative encourages interdisciplinary collaborations between experts from multiple fields - pharmacologists, chemists, physicists, psychologists, neuroscientists, psychologists, endocrinologists, immunologists, geneticists, behavioral scientists, clinicians, and others in relevant fields of inquiry.”

The effectiveness of THC and CBD in treating pain has had many studies in early stages, and others that have gone on to compare them to opioids, and now it seems attention is turning towards developing a better understanding of the many others.

The estimated deadline to submit an application for research funding is March 8, 2019.
